The Wunderlich Patent Ceiling and Roofing Co. Ltd. was set up in Sydney in the 1890s, by the Wunderlich brothers. They had taken out a patent for stamped metal ceilings. By 1897 they had become the sole agents in Australia for Marseilles tiles. They opened terracotta tile works at Brunswick in Melbourne and at Rosehill in Sydney, and developed an asbestos mine in Tasmania to enable them to market fibro sheeting. This part of their business was taken over by James Hardie in 1964.
